“In my 12 year career, this was the best class I have ever taken on leadership.”  Sergeant Josh Johnson

“This is some of the best training I have attended in over 40 years of law enforcement.”

While there are hundreds of leadership courses and thousands of books dedicated on the subject, law enforcement continues to be plagued with a serious lack of leadership and risk management principles.  This course will prepare first responders from all ranks to be courageous in their principles in order to give those under their control a safer working environment.  While many leadership courses focus on theory, this course focuses on practice and the principles taught will help the leader immediately and “de-centralized” leadership is emphasized so every police officer from every rank can be inspired to be a leader.
